Thanks Tim and Jim...

I have it listed too here on pinside. Thinking I may hang on awhile longer if no interest pretty soon. Kind of hate to give it up. But there is only room for so many games. I sold another recently, so I am ok while I wait on Avengers IQ that I ordered. But I know there will be something else after that and even as I sit now It wouldn't hurt to have a hair more space.

Houdini is a lot better game than given credit for. Mine plays very well without any issues. I'd probably be sorry after the fact if it goes. A friend of mine was going to take it but he got vetoed by his wife. Maybe just as well.

Hello,
Grew up with a pinball machine in my house (Charlie's Angels) and looking to provide the same experience for my family now. Figured I would check to see if anyone in the MN metro or northwest metro would have any late 80s/90s pins, preferably in the $1000-$2000 range they want to part with. Otherwise, a point in the right direction would also be appreciated.

Thanks!

If anyone in Minneapolis needs new Williams boards, I'm about to open up my shop next week.

All new Wpc89 and wpc95 boards will be my first offering.

Discount for in person sales.

I'd post a pic, but not allowed in this sub forum.

Check out Pinballbasement.com

Site is still a work in progress, but you can see the general idea if what will be available

#14656 16 days ago

No pins, but might be some good deals in there if you can get over the sales tax and 18% premium. Not sure what quality those HDMI projectors are but might need new bulbs which could set you back a bit.

I have a old pinball dolly/cart, I was thinking of selling and going with a HF lift for size etc. Is anyone interested in an original cart?

This is the cart and it has the newer hydraulic cylinder in it since the install.

If your friend doesnt work on games, I would suggest something other than STTNG then, because he/she will more likely than not have to fix something on it eventually. Shopping out a game is a good way to start the learning process. GL

I agree, that is an issue prone game. Maybe the stern Star Trek if they are into Star Trek? Unless hoov is there to help fix?

He's a doc and has a tech that can work on his games but thanks for the advice. I just source them mostly to help him out. I work on GTB em's but do what I can on these games. Upgrade software, install a mod here and there, send a board in for repair, etc.. This is the 8th game I've helped him get. He now has:
MMRRE
AFMR
MBR
TAF
TZ
ToM
WMS IJ
STTNG (picking up a nice one in KC)

Has room for one, maybe two or three more if he goes to another floor. Suggestions? one of the JJ pins? Maybe CFTBL, SS, TOTAN, White Water, LOTR, CV?

---SCAM ALERT---

Hey just a heads up everyone. I had a craigslist scammer I was dealing with yesterday. I'll give the VERY short story of it.

I had posted a WTB ad for TMNT. He reached out saying he had one. We talked about price and then later he said sorry, his wife already sold it. His story was her dad passed away and had a collection of signs, neons, gas pumps, and two pins. I said what's the other pin. Indiana Jones. I said I'd be interested in that too.

He sent me some pics. It looked nice. I asked for specific pics to which he made every excuse in the world as to why he couldn't do that. He said he was in Duluth and coming down to the cities to deliver a gas pump to a buyer. He wanted a deposit via PayPal friends and family and then he could deliver it for free. Obviously I didn't do that. I offered to pick it up etc. It was clearly a scam, but I'll be completely honest here....He was pretty convincing. He had me going for a bit until the PayPal deposit came into play.

So just be careful when dealing with anyone on craigslist and be aware there is a guy going after pinball people right now.

No idea. Phone # is 218-260-8161.

Side note. I'm always baffled when people get scammed by things like this. I think to myself, "How can someone be so gullible!?". But this guy was very very convincing and had an elaborate story that had so much detail, it seemed impossible to be fake. I almost went for it...

interesting. Doesn't pull up anyone in my phone, which is good. Sorry man, that sucks, at least you didn't send any money. I don't mind deposits but I think I buy from people I know usually now. Did you ever speak on the phone or just text/email.

This is getting crazy. There are multiple people in this community that are looking to scam people, in my opinion. Check out the top thread on Pinside. I know the scammers got me. When buying a pin, truly put CASH ON THE GLASS. It’s the only way.

That and the lack of shows has thrown the entire market dynamic out of whack. Less opportunities to buy, which makes people more willing to take chances.

Not only that but prices of pins were reasonable. Couple years ago at MGC you could pick up working 70s GTB games in 8/10 cosmetics for around $400-$600 now we have $1200 with issues. Just a general observation. That or we buy sell trade amongst ourselves off the market which I’ve been doing recently.
